The Republican Party is divided again as it was in 2012, which cost them to lose the election. As a still registered Republican I can assert that the GOP is a tainted brand. They no longer serve the best interest of the American people. They are doing to Donald Trump what they did to Ron Paul in 2012. They are bypassing the people and picking or at least trying to pick their own man. For the GOP it is not about the party ideology, it is about continuing a policy that the majority of Republican are no longer subscribing to.
We can see in the news today that they are bringing their stooge pick during the 2012 election Mitt Romney to attack who has become the Republican registered citizen's choice and he has already labeled him as a "phony" and a "fraud". Apparently Trump has a different message that is more appealing than that of Cruz and Rubio who are totally committed to continuing a disastrous policy of war and placing America second to Israel. This policy no longer exists, it has been discarded by the Pentagon and the Obama administration but they are still trying not to revive it but resuscitate it, because that policy is already dead.
To better understand this we have to go back to 2001. It is clear now to tens of millions of Americans thanks to the existing evidence and the work of Truthers that the Bush administration was dominated not by Conservatives but by Neo-Cons and Zionists. Truthers have come to understand that the official story of 9/11 is nothing other than a criminal hoax perpetrated on the American people. Trump has made references to 9/11 several times and apparently that frighten them. The promoters of the 9/11 Truth Movement have shared their findings with friends and have broadcasted on the internet media videos from that day which clearly indicate that what was reported on that day makes the official story nothing more than fabricated fiction. In addition dozens of high quality documentaries have been produced that the media will not show but are easily found on the Internet. The attack of 9/11 was indeed an inside job as many Americans had claimed since the early days. This was perpetrated by a hand full of Neo-Cons and Zionist that had hijacked US foreign policy as Wesley Clark clearly stated in the below video.
This GOP policy which was created by a group and organization call PNAC (link inserted below) brought the wars still going on which expedited the demise of our nation. Not only we were bankrupted after spending trillion in criminally unjustified wars base on lies but our nation's image in the world has been decimated. These people also hijacked the Republican Party and used it as a platform for their goals. And these people still control the GOP.
Do not interpret the above as a campaign in favor of Donald Trump. In my voting years I view those aspiring for the 2016 presidency as the most undesirable bunch of presidential candidates that I have ever experienced. With so many talented people in our country willing to serve the best interest of our nation and people all that has been produce so far is what lays on the bottom of the barrel. Our best hope is that between now and conventions day a more appealing and viable candidate is produced on either side, otherwise this could become a record low voting participation election.
Live for today for tomorrow will never come; right?
The fact is that unless the world ends today, tomorrow will come. Today is hard to find anyone under the age of 50 much less 40 and 30 who believes that Social Security will even exist by the time they reach retirement age. Yet, no one is voicing concern or protesting the 7% payroll deduction plus the equal contribution by employers or the full contribution of 14% by those self-employed into a fund which they believe will not be there for them. In simple terms, they are being herded to the slaughter house without complain. Certainly government will come with a solution in the future but in all likelihood it will be at most welfare and food assistance based on the level of poverty of the individual and it may offer barely minimum existence. Enjoy your retirement.
Pensions will be in even worse shape than Social Security. U.S. Government pensioners and Social Security recipients receive payments from an institution although not forever that can print money and still borrow at will, but States and local governments do not share such luxury. Those who are now receiving pensions or plan to do so in the future need to read the enclosed links to see in which direction they are going.
"After working 33 years, he's facing a 55% cut to his pension benefits.Dorsey attended a town hall meeting in Kansas City on Tuesday where retirees turned out for a discussion on "massive" pension cuts proposed by the Central States Pension Fund, which covers 400,000 participants, and which will almost certainly go broke within the next decade."
".long time teamster member Jay Perry who says the writing is on the wall: "What's happening to us is a microcosm of what's going to happen to the rest of the pensions in the United States"
Some may say that their state or city is financially sound but that is per say based on today and not of an unseen future. Take for instance my native state of Florida. Our revenue heavily relies on tourism. Any national economic downturn could put the industry in dire shape and largely reduce state revenues and force the state to do the same as Kansas City and others have done.
Many argue today that Obama Care is going to bankrupt the nation as if wars and reckless spending has not already done so. It is no secret and found on the US Debt Clock website below that Social Security faces a forecasted deficit of nearly $15 trillion and Medicare $28 trillion. So why point fingers at Obama Care's threat of bankrupting the nation when Medicare alone has already done so.
In summary and as the saying goes "don't count your chickens before they hash". Unsustainable false promises have been made and everyone needs an alternative plan to Social Security and pensions.
The future does not just happen, it is always forged in the present; the past only show us whether or not we had the vision.
Before dismissing this concept take note that many have spoken of this and Hugo Salinas here mentioned sees it as the solution. Take note that Hugo Salinas is not just some opinionated economist; he is one of the wealthiest persons on the planet. His son Ricardo now runs his business (here).
Reading Salinas' below article will help understanding how worthless the US Dollar has become thus making the real value of Gold ridiculously low. It is only during the past four decades that Americans have been brainwashed with the stupid concept that worthless paper is wealth and Gold and Silver which have been real wealth for over 5,000 years are worthless relics. "Early civilizations equated gold with gods and rulers, and gold was sought in their name and dedicated to their glorification."
Salina's original article is in Spanish; the links contain the original Spanish format and translation to English.
In 1971 the United States without warning stopped the conversion of the US Dollar with Gold. By the same token the US could revalue the Dollar against Gold at any given time and at any given price. Revaluation of Gold would be accompanied by revaluation of Silver. This is a logical way of eliminating the world's debt which any rational person can agree that it can never be honored or stopped from growing. Salinas' article on $50,000 Gold:http://www.silverdoctors.com/hugo-salinas-price-revaluation-of-gold-coming-gold-price-to-50000-per-ounce/
The US existing debt is in Dollars which is the currency in which this debt is guaranteed with. Repricing the Dollar against Gold makes everyone owning sufficient gold capable of honoring their debt. The US claims to hold 8,133 tonnes. Many countries have been purchasing gold and expanding their gold reserves; especially China and Russia (here). They are doing this for a reason. If gold is revalued against the Dollar debt can be written off and the Dollar put to rest and then replaced with a new currency supported with real money (Gold). Even if one chooses to dismiss what other nations are doing it would be hard to dismiss the reason why JP Morgan has accumulated hundreds of millions of Silver Eagles. Wouldn't you think that JP Morgan knows something that the rest do not know and has done it for a reason?
All debt can be settled in worthless Dollars once revalued against Gold. There are many implications to this but what other choice is there if the existing debt cannot be paid and would otherwise ultimately end in default. By the same token many assets held in US Dollars such as bonds, retirement accounts, pensions and 401k accounts could evaporate. If you have $250,000 in the bank and the conversion is made at a 10/1 ratio your FDIC guaranteed money could shrink to $25,000 when exchanged into the new currency. Those holding Gold and Silver would see no loss in their assets.
A very important but ignored aspect of devaluing the Dollar against Gold is personal debt. Just as in the example above with shrinkage of Dollars in a savings account your home mortgage would suffer the same fate. A $250,000 debt on a 10/1 ration exchange would become a debt of $25,000. In other words if you are holding Gold and Silver you could pay off your mortgage with a small amount of either.
Gold repricing is only one way of resolving the problem of a world carrying a debt that it cannot bear much longer. This of course although not the only alternative would be a much better option than a WWIII that would evaporate untold lives along with debt and wealth.
The best way to illustrate the ignorance of Americans on this subject is the never failing comparison of Hitler restricting gun ownership of Germans. Hitler actually loosened gun ownership laws in Germany. Gun ownership was restricted on Jews whose loyalty was not trusted after the world's Jewish community declare war on Germany with a boycott of German products in 1933. There is an abundance of information on this subject that verifies it.
After this event the loyalty of Jews in Germany was as trusted as the loyalty of Japanese Americans who were thrown in concentration camps and detained until the end of WWII. Rest assured that had American being bombarded every day, had been losing the war and had no food to feed its people those 200,000 interned Japanese would have starved to death. Learn true history and you will live in the truer world.
The best promoter of gun sales and profits for the US gun industry is the rhetoric of gun control. Every time a politician or the media speak of gun control Americans already owning 10 guns stockpiling thousands of rounds of ammunition buy two more guns and another two thousand rounds. Actually it has become some kind of joke and an addiction. Americans are not only armed to their teeth but also possess enough of them to in the future arm those who now object owning guns and may eventually see the need to do so.
There are 300 million guns in the hands of Americans and enough ammunition to take on the world several times. The rhetoric from both side of the argument have become a farce and comical event while the gun industry stimulates the economy and rack up the profits. Americans do not need anymore guns, they will never turn them in or pay taxes and insurance on them; they would just simply hide them if it was attempted.
Where is the political candidate that will tackle corruption?
